Why Gift Cards Make Great Gifts
While there is still time to find gifts for those on your holiday list, between low inventory, and shipping delays, it makes shopping a little complicated. And, I don’t know about you, but not only are the wishlists filled with more elaborate requests, but I find it very difficult to pick out the exact item they want. There are many great reasons to buy gift cards.
- You can shop from home.
- They may appreciate it more because they can choose exactly what they want to get
- It’s the gift that keeps on giving because they can spread out their purchases.
- If it is a business that is financially solvent, the gift card does not typically expire. Check the fine print
- Less stress trying to find the right gift
- They can be used for gifts they feel guilty splurging on.
- Whether you pick out a gift card for every night of Hanukkah (that’s 8 gift cards) or follow a Christmas advent calendar (that’s 25 gift cards), you can include a variety of options in denominations that fit your budget.
- If you forgot someone or are running out of time, you can easily download a digital gift card.
I already have all of the gift cards in my possession. Some I ordered online and some I had to physically go to the store to purchase. I also used points on my credit cards in exchange for gift cards.

Be Creative With Your Wrapping
I’m a DIY-er wannabe so I always try to find a way to create a custom gift card display. And trust me, I’ve had my share of Pinterest fails when it comes to execution. But the Capricorn in me does not give up.
This year I did a spin on a prior one, adding in more texture and the leftover Decorative Crystal Wire Ornament Hook Hangers I used for my tablescape.
This can easily be adapted to your faith. This entire display came to around $25.00 (with my coupon). If you were doing one for Christmas, maybe using 25 days, then I would either get three of the rectangular wood pallets or the 12 pack one. I’ve included links to digital Christmas-themed stickers, red glitter clothespins, and Christmas mini gift bags.
- Michael’s wood hanging – $2.99
- Michael’s round wooden embellishments – $4.19.
- Michael’s mini clothespins – $4.19. I chose white but they have some adorable Christmas-themed ones that would look great too.
- Kraft Paper Mini Gift Bags – $9.80. For Christmas, you can substitute out these Christmas gift card paper bags for $9.00
- Digital gift tag– mine was for Hanukkah but you can easily use these cute ones for Christmas for $4.99 or more like an advent calendar.
The digital gift tags come with guides so it was easy to cut into a perfectly centered circle. I glued them onto the smaller round wooden embellishments. Next, I glued on the clothespins. Finally, I put the gift cards in each of the mini gift bags, and voila, I had my gift display. It’s relatively easy to make and I mean that sincerely.
